I have a couple of rules questions:

For multi-powers, can they not be used in the same panel, or not as part of the same action/be activated at the same time? There's some text in the book that makes it seem like the former, but as written looks more like the latter.

The Cosmic Entropy power makes reference to a non-existent Darkness power suite, should this be referencing something else?

They can be used one after another in the same panel; just not *simultaneously*. So for instance if you have a telekinetic character who put Telekinesis and Push in a Multi-Power, and they pick someone up with Telekinesis, they cannot keep holding onto them while also using the Push power. They would need to let go (or you could of course, have them use the Push power on the person they were holding, flinging them away from you).
"Darkness Suite" should be "Shadow Suite".

I have all of the individual PDFs. I’m sure many of us do. Can we have a comp copy of this version?

If you backed the Kickstarter to receive this version, check your email! I sent out those coupon codes first thing after the product went live!

I think Curt was asking about the other way around -- if we've bought the individual ones, can we have this one comped? I was wondering the same thing but don't expect it... I didn't even realize there was a KS or I would've backed that.

What I've done when I published compilations/omnibus versions of a line, I create a bundle that contains the individual items and then the omnibus/compilation as a $0 item at the end. Those who bought into the line along the way can get the omnibus prorated. For instance, _Echelon Reference Series: Cleric Spells_ has ten individual titles (orisons, levels 1-9) plus a compilation. If you bought the individual titles you can get the bundle with the omnibus for free -- you bought in early, I'm not going to charge you for my putting all ten into a single PDF.

For me, it was easy to do because it was just a matter of generating a file that had all the individual documents as chapters. Dead easy with my workflow. It sounds like this omnibus involves reorganizing some things, possibly rewriting some bits, and so on. More work, in other words, so it seems fair to charge for it.

I admit it would be nice to get a break on the price, after having spent probably over $50 on the line so far (I tend...See more

It was a lot of work to revise and rewrite much of what is in it. This version also has all the Advantages, Disadvantages, Enhancements, and Limitations that have been published for BASH! UE (not just in Awesome Powers). I will look into seeing if I can figure how to prorate it to offer some sort of discount.

I just sent out a special offer to everyone who bought more or less the whole line. Assuming they are signed up to receive special discount offers, they should receive it soon.

[it was a lot of work to revise and write must of what is in it, etc.]

Indeed, which is why I said I thought it would be nice if there was a discounted version available, but reasonable that there is not... but I see you've found a way to get us a discounted version. Thank you for your generosity, I've picked it up and it's in my downloads now.

Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
